A disabled man has been robbed in a "vicious and unprovoked" attack in Fife.
The 62-year-old man, who uses a zimmer frame, was on Victoria Road, Leven when he was attacked at 13:35 on Tuesday.
The suspect stole a three figure sum from the man before running off.
He is believed to be in his 20s, with a slim build and about 5ft 10in tall. He was wearing a white jacket. Police are appealing for witnesses.
Nicola Mowbray, of Fife Constabulary, said: "This was a vicious and unprovoked assault on a vulnerable man and I am appealing for anyone who has any information to contact Fife Police."
